GUEST,Paranoid Android Origins: Cliffs of Dooneen. WHERE? (130* d) Origins: Cliffs of dooneen. WHERE? 23 Jan 05

Because the song "Cliffs of Dooneen" refers to several locations in County Clare most people assume that the cliffs of Dooneen are in County Clare. I have long held the view that the cliffs of Dooneen are located near Beal in north Co. Kerry which is located on the Shannon Estuary facing towards Co. Clare. I recently met a County Clare man who said that the cliffs of Dooneen are non existent and are merely a figment of the song-writer's imagination. Has anyone out the got the definitive answer?
